MYH2

(redirected from myosin heavy chain IIa)

MYH2

A gene on chromosome 17p13.1 that encodes a heavy chain of myosin and is thus involved in cytokinesis, cell shape and specialised functions—e.g., secretion and capping.

Molecular pathology
MYH2 mutations are linked to inclusion body myopathy-3.
